Chinese Translation Implemented!



We're excited to announce that today we've added full Chinese translation (simplified) into the game. This has been something we've been working on for a couple of months. Red Hook is excited to continue to bring DD to new audiences. We hope you enjoy it!

This translation includes many contributions from the Chinese community, and we are grateful for your support and efforts to improve the game!

We've also added some community improvements to Russian and French translations as well.

Over the course of Darkest Dungeon's lifetime, members of the community have stepped in to help us improve the quality of the game's translation and it's something we continue to be grateful for! However, there is always work to be done as we have continued to add content to the game and there are other languages yet to be supported.

In this effort we've been working to make it easier for community members to contribute to the game's translation. With the help from Unknown Worlds (makers of Subnautica) we have a website tool that makes it easier for you to help contribute and improve the games translation, as well as begin supporting new languages.

Anyone can go to this website and make an account and begin submitting improved translations to then be approved by moderators of each respective language. If you want us to add a new language for the community to start contributing to let us know and we will open up a new language to begin being translated. As an example it was through the help of the community and this web tool that 90% of Simplified Chinese was translated. We would love to support other often requested languages like Korean/Turkish and we are asking for your help as every time we've turned to the community the quality and translation is unparalleled as our players understand the tone and themes of the game better than anyone else.

As always, we'll be keeping an eye on any feedback and bugs.

About This Game

Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring.

Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. You'll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.

  • The Affliction System – battle not only monsters, but stress! Contend with paranoia, masochism, fear, irrationality, and a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks!
  • Striking hand-drawn gothic crowquill art style
  • Innovative turn-based combat pits you against a host of diabolical monsters
  • Narration system to celebrate your successes...and failures
  • 16 (and counting!) playable hero classes, including Plague Doctor, Hellion, and even the Leper!
  • Camp to heal wounds or deliver inspiring speeches.
  • Rest your weary, shell-shocked characters in town at the Tavern or the Abbey to keep their stress in check.
  • Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including character permadeath, procedural dungeons, and incredible replay

Can you stem the tide of eldritch horrors erupting across your family’s ancestral estate?

Descend at your peril!
